Thanks
I think confused a couple folks with those photos - I just added the two photos of the wheel to show folks what this steering wheel thick wrapped with the hockey puck horn button will look like when I'm done. I grabbed that photo from the Internet - definitely nice car.

Your car will be special when you are through and I hope well worth the effort.

I would like to see more on the 308 - sounds like a great project. I appreciate the encouragement - it is motivating!

Can't post Ferrari pics here but I am on Fchat with all kinds of pics and nightmare scenarios.

Bottom line what fails in 1980s Ferraris is all the Bosch, yes German Bosch, components like fuel distributors, warm up regulators, fuel injectors, etc. Also the engine seals create havoc with the distributors and trans to engine seals. The cars are beautiful but the engineering is lacking and the build quality Crap with a capital C.
Bottom line they are a completely different experience to drive than Porsche but I think worth the effort.

Porsche, however, is the better choice all around and for vintage and new and that will be my focus until the bitter end.

I have an fchat account but haven't logged in a while. My buddy has ferraris so I would follow his stuff. If your user is the same I will look you up.

Very nice ! Always exciting....

Bill, which plating shop did you use and what was their turn around time? My local guys do great work, but they tend to try and add my stuff in with large industrial jobs and it can take a while...

I have some bits and bobs that still need to be done...

Hey Robert, I used Active Plating in Santa Ana. They operate 24 hours a day and can turn stuff around in hours if you want. My experience with them is mixed. My order was lost in the holiday hours and mixup with their prep guy so hard for me to say whether or not my order was a normal experience or just bad luck. Most items came out good except for pieces that were in bad shape and probably should have just been replaced. The condition of the part definitely affects both the color and surface appearance - I continue to learn along the way!

Now I have to remember where all these parts go!

oh, and the 18mm front is a super cool set up for those trying to keep that OE look but maximize the thru the body style performance (IMHO). Not sure if you researched that thread on Early S, but here is a pic of the arms used - these are unique to just this 18mm bar set up as it is beefed up for that large bar (even the ends are larger). I think it is cool anyway

Ya i spent way too much time between client calls today on my list. Talking to other buddies on what they did. Etc.
I think. It will be much more sporting but not too much. I can always back it back.... and my tires are meaty 70 series which will keep some of the compliance there. Can also mess with damping on the shocks. Goal is a bit more chassis control to balance with the power.

Nice bag o’ gold you got there Bill! I did the same with my car, with cad plating. I put all the original swaybar parts aside in case I ever wanted to put them back.

Always smart to keep the OE stuff around! One thing I should have mentioned to Spyerx as he is evaluating his build is that using the OE rear sway bar mounts can have its challenges. The part number I gave above (#21) is the latest version of those mounts from Porsche and they have improved the design a bit with gussets, but I read a bunch of threads about the original brackets breaking with spirited driving and people upgrading to stronger aftermarket mounts (Wevo). I personally think it could have to do with age and corrosion though. I am still going OE myself, but this is a word of caution. Rob, I am guessing you upgraded those mounts?
